Last Sunday, we had the French contingent that was present at Juventutem come up and spend a few days with us, up here in Brisbane.The presence of Fr Jean-Cyrille Sow, FSSP, based in St-Etienne near Lyon and Fr Eric Iborra, from the archdiocese of Paris, enabled us to have a Solemn Mass.
Our Choir was also augmented by a few French Pilgrims. Following the High Mass, Fr Iborra, said his private Mass, with one of our new up and coming servers serving. We held a warm reception in honor of these pilgrims, in the traditional Aussie way, with a BBQ!
Finally once all was said and done, we all parted ways. Juventutem and WYD 2008, for us now are officially over, we all have grown as a result of such a life changing experience. As the French have said to us, "See you in Madrid!"
